Benelli TNT 150 is one potential product that could help the brand boost sales in India. The new model of TNT 150 has been officially unveiled in China and it is also on-sale in Pakistan. It carries the same sharp design that was seen through its official leaked video. As per the latest details available, Benelli may launch the 150cc TNT in India by the end of 2019.
The motorcycle is powered by a 148cc engine producing 11.4 HP at 7500 rpm and 10.7 Nm at 6500 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The power values are least interesting as even 125cc engines of India produce more torque than this motor. The bike weighs 144 kg, making it even less effective on paper with the lowest possible power-to-weight ratio in comparison to all 150cc Indian bikes.
Benelli TNT 150 comes with class-leading features like USD forks, all-digital console and dual disc brakes for maximum braking power. It measures 2080 mm in length and brings 1365 mm of wheelbase for comfortable riding experience. The best part for TNT 150 is all new design and red painted frame. It carries a 13.5-litre fuel tank. Benelli could use a more powerful, locally developed 150cc engine to make TNT 150 a better option against TVS Apache, Bajaj Pulsar, Yamaha FZ, Honda CB Hornet and Suzuki Gixxer. They may retain the suspension parts to justify expected INR 1 lakh price tag.
